These two are made for each other; adventurous, deeply caring, genuinely joyful people who found their perfect partner in life. I think my favorite part about Josh & Emily is the way that BOTH of them automatically smiled and (yes literally) cooed every time I asked them to get their faces close to each other….
Between the gorgeous historic Hotel Sorrento in downtown Seattle and the incredible architectural design of the Chapel of St. Ignatius on Seattle University’s campus, this urban wedding was practically iconic from start to finish. I couldn’t get over every beautiful, texturized, light-drenched detail. And you couldn’t find a better couple to be hosting their close…
The Karuzas are literally one of the most beautiful families I’ve ever met. And Ashley should be a home designer, with how gorgeous she’s decorated every room of their house. This lifestyle newborn session was an absolute dream!
This beautiful family is growing up so fast, and I swear James & Emma get cuter every time I see them. Emma’s giggly little face with that amazing curly head just gets me every time!
OH MY GOODNESS – will you please just appreciate the perfection of this girl’s cheeks?! I literally could not get over how beautiful Emma is, and she was such a happy baby during the entire photo session! Her parents got an absolute gem with this child. Dream baby!
I love my family mini sessions at Hovander Park – there is so much to explore, and with kids this age a half an hour is often the most that they’re up for. I have been so lucky to photograph this super sweet family from the beginning – all the way back to Cody &…
Having celebrated their engagement, wedding and first baby with them, I was absolutely thrilled to be invited to capture Aaron & Brenna’s first few days with the newest addition to the sweet Fox family. He’s got a lot of cuteness to live up to in following his adorable big sister, that’s for sure!!
Two beautiful people are expecting a beautiful baby; we headed over to Tennant Lake on a perfectly romantic cloudy day to play around and capture the joy that’s on the way!
My friend Kristen, who was also my son’s amazing kindergarten teacher, was expecting her second bundle of incredible energy a couple of months ago and I jumped at the chance to take them all out to Hovander Park after school for a short family/maternity mini photo sesson. I love this family!
I was so excited to be able to capture these intimate at-home moments with Tony & Sheri in their charming downtown Seattle home with baby Oliver. Their 2019 wedding was EPIC, at the most AMAZING venue in Minneapolis (check it out here), and there is almost nothing I love better about my job than being…
The beginning of a life is breathtaking and heartrending in its beauty; and when a life is as longed for and hard-fought for as Cecelia’s, the joy is magnified almost beyond comprehension. This incredible mom & dad tried for years to add to their family, finally succeeding and naming her Cecelia after a beloved grandmother….
May Day was beautiful this year, even beyond the perfect spring weather; because two of the sweetest, most deserving people started a new life together. I completely adore Katie and she has found her perfect match in Ryan. Congratulations again, you two – you’ve got a lot of happy years in front of you! ❤️
I am so happy that another adorable baby Fox on the way! First of all, just look at this little cherub – her brother is going to have some serious cuteness to measure up to. Secondly, Aaron and Brenna are two of the sweetest, most loving parents and I love watching them build such a…
Sparkling eyes, infectious giggles – I pretty much immediately fell in love with this family. The kids jumped out of the car ready to play, and with all the fall colors and PNW sunset behind us, it was a beautiful playful photo session!
I have had the great privilege of personally knowing and being able to photograph this beautiful family from the time they first moved to Bellingham, and brought home two of their now-five kids waaaay back in 2008. Today, they have one kid in the Navy; one just about to start in-person classes at Gonzaga; one…
Oh my goodness, this little girl’s faces!! She could make anyone fall in love with her. Sometimes with young kids, a 20-30 minute session is all that they’re going to stand for; fortunately, it’s all we need to frame up the story of what your lives are right in this moment!
Two little girls, flower dresses, fall leaves on the ground and a rustic wooden fence = romantic family photos. Oh wait, did I mention the incredible foggy background we happened to get that morning? Make that romantic family photo PERFECTION.
Oh my goodness, I love fall at Hovander Park! And this adorable little family coordinated themselves so perfectly with the fall colors; this couldn’t have gotten any better.
Adorable tiny curly heads under umbrellas, cute rain boots stompin’ in back alley puddles – it’s what my urban family photo dreams are made of! 😉 Plus, anytime I get to hang out and laugh with this family it’s a good day. I met Chris & Chelsea in the charming downtown Mt Vernon just before…
“Until one has loved an animal a part of one’s soul remains unawakened.” ― Anatole France Buddy is getting on in years, and I was honored to capture the memory of his life and faithful friendship with Steve & Kristi. Our dogs are our treasured family, and their mark on our lives is wonderfully deep.
A father & son have a bond like no other. Big families, tiny families – all have memories to capture and cherish. Stay grateful for all that you have, and hold them close today.
I love family photos with young children, but I love it even more when it’s with my tribe; and these are my people. Lovely fall color, goofy kids and good friends!
Adding a second child takes your lives up more than one notch! I love capturing the first few weeks of the blur of chaos, exhaustion, love and excitement of the second or third arrival. Getting into your home with a lifestyle newborn session lets me capture emotions as they show up in your everyday lives….
A windy new year’s day, beautiful wide open field, and two best friends about to get married. Save-The-Date mini engagement session perfection!
Sunset at Semiahmoo with your best friend; the most beautiful romance in the world.
